Ambiance was absolutely PERFECT in every way! The location was great, the view from the villa was spectacular, having a pool AND a hot tub was great, and the villa was equipped to perfection!! We had MORE than enough rooms. We would return without a hesitation and would highly recommend it for (like we did) a family gathering! How is that for a recommendation??? It doesn't get better than St John!! The beaches are fabulousâ¦.we went to a different one each day. Since we were with little children, it was so very nice to return to Ambiance every afternoon. And we will be in touch with you when we plan our next vacation!! It is good to know you are there as a dependable resource.
We reserved the Ambiance as a family vacation villa during the week of my girlfriend's wedding. As busy as we were, we found plenty of time to relax at the Ambiance and explore St John. The house was gorgeous and extraordinarily equipped - there were cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, a gourmet equipped kitchen and fabulous sound system. The pool, grill and deck were the highlights! La Tapa was decent but overpriced, Margarita Phil's was fun (the Grande Margaritas are to die for), and Woody's is a no-fail zone. Hawksnest, Cinnamon Bay and Maho were beautiful but Trunk was by far the most gorgeous! We partied at the beautiful "Vistaero" (villa) for a cocktail party, dined at the Meridian (villa) for the rehearsal dinner, and attended the wedding (i was a bridesmaid) at Hawksnest. Coral World's Harbor Cat hosted the cocktail party as we travelled to St Thomas for the Reception. This was a vacation of a lifetime!
We booked this wonderful home in May, 2006 - knew it looked wonderful in the pictures and hoped for the best. We were thrilled that it turned out to be even more beautiful than we'd hoped! A very well thought out home, and views to die for. Great location for coming back and forth from Cruz Bay. Favorite activity was happy hour in the pool at sunset. A wonderful memory - hope to go back again soon!
What a wonderful trip! Of course the highlight was our wedding on Hawksnest beach and I would highly recommend Ann Marie Porter as a minister. We ate at Morgan's Mango one night and it was very good. We also used Calypso to rent a dingy and alhough I had read some not so complimentary things about them we had no problems and I would recommend them as well. We ordered a cake from East/West catering and it was wonderful. The flowers from Passion Flower were just beautiful as well. The house was perfect and we are thinking of going again next year.
